GRIEF-CRAZED PARENTS
SEARCH FOR LNFAT
Friends Assist in Ransacking the Town
and at a Late Hour the Weary Babe
ls Located at the Hale House, Where
She Had Been Taken at One TWie
for a Brief Visit by Mother.
Little Ethel Blair. who lives ratr
Quartz andl Crystal strcets, caused great
excitement last night by starting out gi1
journey without leaving word as to Sler
she was Iound.
For three hours her father searched the
neighborhood and rescue parties scoured
the alleys and streets. When found, she
had wandered down by the lisHle house and
was still on the go.
Mother Goes Calling.
The Imother went out to make a call
during the evening and left little 3-year*
old I.thel with her father.
As he was reading and writinl the little
girl did not get as much attention as her
restless nature demanded.
Therefore she concluded the proper
thing for her to do was to go out and Bbd
her mother, on which thought she pro
ceeded to act.
After a while the father missed the
pride of the household and began to get
worried. He searched the house, but
there was no sign of the baby.
lie looked through the yard and in
quired of the neighbors, but to no avail.
The little one was lost.
Streets Are Searched.
Accordingly a searching party was
formed and the streets were swarming
with friends and acquaintances of the dis
tracted father.
For three hours the father led the hui
from place to place and sent word to the
mother that the child was out on the
streets of Butte and could not be found.
The mother hastened home, to find her
worst fears confirmed-the, child was
lost. The police were notified, but they
could learn nothing of the whereabouts of
the little one.
After a time it occurred to the father
that the mother was in the habit of calling
on friends in the neighbhorhood of thse
Hale house and had at times taken the
child with her.
Perhaps the little one might have re
membered the direction and started out
to find her mother.
Little One Is Found.
Acting on the suggestion of the father
the searching party turned its steps to
ward the Hale house and, sure enough,
there they found the little girl. who
though but three years of age traveled all
the way from Quartz anmi Crystal to the
place she was found inside of three hours.
